Re: Roku not allowing me to access channels I have through Verizon FiOS
Sometimes, apps for cable networks from the same family -- for example, the ones that are all owned by Discovery, or the ones owned by NBC/Universal -- will experience an issue because of some issue on their end. That would be the thing in common that's causing the issue with several apps.
However, you've mentioned apps for channels that are completely unrelated. ESPN is owned by ABC/Disney and TruTV is owned by Warner. So, what's the common thing. Well, there are two.
One is of course, they are Roku apps. But this isn't a wide-spread thing. Roku devices are in use by millions of people. If suddenly Roku was the issue, it would be very wide-spread and this forum would be inundated with complaints about it.
Another is that specific Roku device. It could be that Roku device has corrupt data stored with the apps. To remove that, you would 1) remove the apps in question, then 2) reboot the Roku, then 3) reinstall the apps. Do all three of those steps, and do them in that order.
So, what's the other thing? That Verizon FiOS account. Could be a temporary hiccup on their end. Or, it could be that something else is going on.
To test that, you should be able to access those services (ESPN, for instance) on a Web browser and try to authenticate with the Verizon FiOS credentials. If it doesn't work, you should contact Verizon FiOS and let them know the credentials from that account aren't working for you.
If it does work, then let us know, and we'll re-evaluate based on the results of what you did. Be sure to let us know the steps you did if it still doesn't work.
